NT authentication

First, I want to clarify That I am a unix systems person in a mostly unix
shop and this windows stuff is voodoo to me.

I have successfully set up several Windows 98 systems that use samba for
all the user login authentication, roaming profiles, and the whole works.
It seems to work well. One passwd for both unix and Windows logins. The
Samba team has done a great job in coding and documentation. ...most of
what I know about Windows comes from Samba documentation :-}

We just got an NT machine and I am trying to figure out how to do the same
thing with it. That is, when a user logs in, I would like it to query the
samba server for the password. I just can't seem to figure out how to do
this. I suspect that I am going to have to manually create and setup each
user individually on the NT machine, but I just can't figure out how to
make it do the user authentication stuff off the samba server.

Thanks for any help on this.
